Description: This is a very simple board that takes a 6-12V input voltage and outputs a selectable 5V or 3.3V regulated voltage. All headers are 0.1" pitch for simple insertion into a breadboard.
Input power can be supplied to either the DC barrel jack or the two pin header labeled + and -. Output power is supplied to the pins labeled GND and VCC. Board has both an On/Off switch and a voltage select switch (3.3V/5V).
The two sets of four GND and VCC holes are spaced such that when connected to our Basic Breadboard both power busses will be powered.
Note: Headers are not supplied. You will need to supply your own headers to connect this board to a breadboard. Check below for some breakaway header strips.

Having a few of these lying around makes it easy to quickly try something or leave something with a supply handy.

This wonderful little board let’s me choose 3.3V for a Particle board or 5V for an arduino and the extra header let’s me pull off the source 12V.
I have only recently begun working on electronics projects. This power supply works well for my needs. I mostly need 5 volts, for my breadboard for small projects.
I soldered four header pins into the board and that was that. I pushed into the breadboard easily. There is an on-off switch and a switch to go from 3 volts to 5 volts.
Works great. Very happy with it for the price.
